AU Release Date.

GTAGaming.com - General News | @ 01:16 AM MDT | By Shawn
Earlier I speculated how unlikely it would be that GTA: San Andreas would arrive in Australia on the proposed date of 29th October, based on what happened in previous years. In various places the dates 11th and 12th of November are popping up and today xeroer contacted Take Two - getting a confirmation that the release date is the 12th of November. Hopefully this will be a solid date without a repeat of Vice City's continually pushed back release.

Edit: After receiving enough feedback about the NZ information previously here I've decided to remove it. No need to have people worried about something that is likely nothing more than a rumor.

Anyone not from Australia must be tired of my AU news :)

I think the only reason it has been delayed in the past is due to the rating, but considering it has already been rated in Aus makes me think it should be released 29th Oct, also taking into consideration the Halo 2 release..one would think they would want to get in before that!

I'm with C.Johnson. Why will it be delayed. They cannot rate a game till it has been played all the way through(cut version to make sure there is no spots the company has missed). So if you can find why there is a delay I will believe you but till than.

Heh, true xeroer. I guess I meant 11th and 12th. For some reason I remembered it as 13, which was only in mind because a few days ago I saw it on gamesmarket.com.au. I went to link it.. then noticed it had reverted to 29th again.

mattie_o/CJohnson, Vice City was rated before it was pushed back.. three times. Ironically while you are optimistic about the 29th, I'm still not expecting it by the 12th either :P Guess I'm just pessimistic after how long I waited to get my hands on Vice City.
Besides like xeroer stated, that date is appearing in magazines.

TakeTwo respond to emails? You'll be waiting three years.. Phone them, it's a lot easier and better.

Someone emailed this site saying the game would be banned in NZ, considering the previous 2 games were not banned and were unedited, this is very unlikely, also if anyone is from NZ (like me) then you will just know it wont be banned. Thats not to say it wont be bannned, maybe it will, but theres a 99% chance it wont be. Its most likely some one just trying to get NZ and Aussies worried, NZ's so they cant get the game, and Aussies so they cant get the uncut one (easier to get it from NZ since its next door to us)

I agree with the above though, i doubt it totally that NZ will ban it seeing they have already accepted preorders etc... They can''t just go back on all of that stuff and give all of us Aussies + NZ's refunds for preorders of the game that they have so far said is coming out can they? Exactly!
